Pure CSS/CSS3 Text Rotator

Description:

A CSS3 powered text rotator which allows you to scroll through a list of text like a news ticker.

How to use it:

Build the Html structure for a text rotator with up/down navigation arrows.

<div id="rotatio-alsh" class="rotatio-container">
  <a class="rotatio-reset" href="#rotatio-alsh" accesskey="r" tabindex="-1"></a>
  
  <span id="next1" tabindex="6"></span>
  <span id="previous5" tabindex="10"></span>
  
  <span id="next2" tabindex="1"></span>
  <span id="previous6" tabindex="11"></span>
  
  <span id="next3" tabindex="2"></span>
  <span id="previous1" tabindex="12"></span>
  
  <span id="next4" tabindex="3"></span>
  <span id="previous2" tabindex="7"></span>
  
  <span id="next5" tabindex="4"></span>
  <span id="previous3" tabindex="8"></span>
  
  <span id="next6" tabindex="5"></span>
  <span id="previous4" tabindex="9"></span>

  <div class="rotatio-controls">
    <div class="rotatio-arrows"></div>
    
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#next2" tabindex="-1"></a>
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#previous6" tabindex="-1"></a>
    
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#next3" tabindex="-1"></a>
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#previous1" tabindex="-1"></a>
    
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#next4" tabindex="-1"></a>
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#previous2" tabindex="-1"></a>
    
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#next5" tabindex="-1"></a>
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#previous3" tabindex="-1"></a>
    
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#next6" tabindex="-1"></a>
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#previous4" tabindex="-1"></a>
    
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#next1" tabindex="-1"></a>
    <a class="rotatio-anchor" href="#previous5" tabindex="-1"></a>
    
    <div class="rotatio-swivel">
      <div class="rotatio-item">Text rotator item 1</div>
      <div class="rotatio-item">Text rotator item 2</div>
      <div class="rotatio-item">Text rotator item 3</div>
      <div class="rotatio-item">Text rotator item 4</div>
      <div class="rotatio-item">Text rotator item 5</div>
      <div class="rotatio-item">Text rotator item 6</div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

Include the prefix-free JS library to make the text rotator work nicely across the browsers.

<script src="prefixfree.min.js"></script>

Add the following CSS/CSS3 snippets into your document and override the styles to your taste.

.rotatio-container > .rotatio-reset { display: none; }
